I am some pleased with myself this week! I have now been working at St. Michael’s Printshop now for three months and I’m celebrating with a Members Exhibit. I’ll be hosting an Opening Reception this Saturday, May 18th, 2013 in the newly renovated Gallery space. I even did up a poster for it. Come out and see the place – I’ll even treat you to a glass of wine ;o)
Spring has finally sprung (for now anyway) and I have been working on a poster for a new concert my husband and the very talented Chris Kirby have been putting together. Last year, my husband, John, was asked to stage manage a “new talent” contest which in turn introduced him to some wonderful young musicians. Coincidentally, Chris Kirby was offering the prize to the winners of this contest in the form of recording a demo which introduced him to the same. Chris and John have been so inspired by the level of musicianship and professionalism of these young performers they have decided to put a concert together that will take place at the LSPU Hall, Saturday, June 15th.
So I invite you to come out to this show. You will be blown away. At this concert you will see some of the finest music written and performed by some of the finest musicians in this province today.
And…here is the poster… 😮
I was having fun today doing up a new poster for the next FAS event. On January 27th, Young Folk at the Hall will be held at the LSPU Hall once again – this is it’s 12th Year! And this year, just because there is so much young talent in Newfoundland, there is going to be an extra concert in the event at 8pm. A Showcase of New Artists will feature the likes of Brianna Gosse, Peter Lanon, Nick Earle, Kat McLevey, Jenna Maloney, Esmee Gilbert and Leslie Amminson – many being alumni of the Young Folk Program. Tickets for both events can be purchased at the LSPU Hall.
This week I was pleased to submit my final piece for a book cover illustration I was commissioned to do. The book is for the MMaP division of MUN and it is for a book that cover the cultural diversity of St. John’s. I needed to represent 10 – 15 different countries somehow, while still representing St. John’s. This actually didn’t take too long, and after only a couple of drafts I managed to come up with something I think works well enough while still keeping it light. I didn’t want to get away from what I have been doing the last couple of years because that is the work the good folks at the MMaP have seen so I didn’t want to shock them :o) Love this type of work!
